  • Contract Summary

    Crown Commercial Service (CCS) sought a self-service print platform to bring under management the high-volume, low-spend print requirements across the public sector, allowing access to a prequalified, dynamic and local supplier base who offer real-time pricing across the print landscape. This enabled end users to access the best solution for their print requirements based on variables including price and location. It was anticipated that this would be through an external-facing technology platform that provides real-time access to a vendor database of local printers who could offer dynamic pricing for customers' various print requirements. This framework had a single supplier lot and can be used by Central Government and UK public sector bodies.
